Hey friends! I haven’t shared a crochet pattern with you guys in like forever so I think it’s about time I did!
I got the idea to make these because I love using wicker hanging baskets filled with floral sprigs in my farmhouse style decor. These are perfect on my corner hutch in our front room.
This is a super easy pattern to make that works up quickly. If you know how to make the basic stitches and read a simple stitch chart, you can work this up in no time flat!

- ch = chain
- st = stitch
- ch – chain stitch
- sc = single crochet
- dc = double crochet
- sl st = slip stitch
All directions are in US terms. Pattern is worked in an oval around the chain while holding 5 strands of yarn together (in other words, you are crocheting using 5 strands of yarn at the same time instead of the usual 1 strand of yarn).
Round 1: ch 1; sc in each st across the top of the ch, sc 3 in last ch, sc in each st back across the bottom of the ch, sl st in the ch st to join. You should have 16 st counting the first ch st.
Round 2 – 8: ch 3; dc in each st around; sl st in the ch st to join.
Round 9: ch 3; sc in each st around; sl st in the ch st to join. Cut yarn, tie off and weave in ends.
Tie on the back of the basket.
Row 1: ch 10; slip stitch onto back of the basket.
Row 2: sl st back across the chain, sl st where you tied on to finish. Cut yarn, tie off and weave in ends.
Note: If you end the basket in a good place to start the loop, there is no need to cut and reattach the yarn – only cut and reattach if you finish the basket in an awkward place to start the loop.
I made the stitch chart for both left and right handed crocheters. Most people crochet right handed, but I use my left hand so I have to support my fellow lefties!
